Editor's Note
On the 25th anniversary of Paul Simon's GRACELAND, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger offers a glimpse at the controversy surrounding the decision to record the album in South Africa despite a UN boycott of the nation, which was aimed at ending apartheid. In the run-up to an eagerly anticipated reunion concert, Simon, Quincy Jones, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, Harry Belafonte, Paul McCartney and others reflect on the decision to record with local artists in South Africa, and the cultural impact of the album that delivered such hits as "I Know What I Know" and "You Can Call Me Al."

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Powered by Simon's brilliance, UNDER AFRICAN SKIES is a cultural lightning bolt that soars on its music and an unshakable belief in the transcendence of art." 05/10/2012
